Sasha Banks was instrumental in Bayley retaining the SmackDown Women's Championship, but “The Role Model” couldn’t return the favor, accidentally helping cost Banks the Raw Women's Title against Asuka

The Legit Boss had a leg up from the opening bell, targeting Asuka's knee that Bayley focused on in their earlier matchup. Banks looked set to cruise to an easy victory after hitting an incredible flipping powerbomb to the outside from the apron, dropping The Empress of Tomorrow with a sickening thud. 

But Asuka turned the tables, demonstrating her resolve with a top-rope missile dropkick despite her injured knee.

Suddenly desperate and on the defensive, Banks pleaded with Bayley at ringside for reassurance. But Bayley was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and she moved out of the way to avoid the same hip attack that Asuka hit Banks with in Bayley's own title defense earlier in the evening. 

Asuka reversed The Legit Boss' Bank Statement attempt, pulling her into an Asuka Lock in the middle of the ring, where Banks had no choice but to submit. 

All Banks and Bayley could do was look at each other in disbelief, suddenly having one fewer piece of gold among them.
